More beautiful than the previous post, if that's at all possible! That detail, softness and colour, just wonderful! 5stars. ^)^
PS: Thanks for your advices re the 500D lens. I should have guessed it was what we call a filter, rather than a lens and, therefore, you're right, my 35mm does get in quite close and I wouldn't need something like this. It's good to know about these things, 'tho, thanks again barbara! best to you, ^)^

@janina: Thank you and you're welcome! The 500D is still a rather inexpensive piece of VERY good glass if you ever want to get closer. :)

Stephen from Canberra, Australia
